The 1995 year group of Adisadel College has donated assorted items worth GH¢ 1,500.00 to the Freedom House Foundation Widows and Orphans Training Centre in Doryumu, near Dodowa.

The items included bags of rice, loaves of bread, cartoons of milk, sugar, cooking oil, drinks and a box of tin tomatoes.

The rest were detergents, toiletries, 30 pieces of deodorants and toilet rolls.

In addition to the items, there was an ice cream party for the orphans as part of activities making the New Year festivities.

Mr Kwamina Ackun-Wood, Spokesperson for the group who made the presentation, said it was part of their duty of responding to the needs of the less privileged in society.

He said the donation also formed part of events marking the group’s 20th anniversary after leaving school.

“There is the need to make the less affected feel at home and always know that people care for them wherever they find themselves

“So we are here today to put smiles on their faces and also support them in every way to make the running of this place efficient,” he said.

“We are inspired by the fact that we were able to go to Senior High School, and that is why we are here giving back to society through our little quota to those we have identified as underprivileged and do not have the means,” he said.

Other members of the group advised the children to take their studies seriously as there was a brighter future ahead of them.

Reverend Mrs Priscilla Andoh, Founder, Freedom House Foundation Widows and Orphans Training Centre, receiving the items, thanked the group for the support and appealed to other benevolent people to emulate the gesture.
